In all honesty it all depends how you perceive it or who's perceive it right?

I personally had made friends with a forty year old woman when I was 12 I'd hangout with her, watch anime, talk about family issues etc etc. I'd go over once a week, to me it was fine and we had a wonderful friendship and still do. Now lets perceive this through my parents eyes, this situation is quite alarming a child and a grown woman spending hours alone together in a house they have no access too, brings up some questions doesn't it. It comes worse when society gets involved rumors might be started and all in all both a shunned for having such an "out of the norm" relationship. In all honesty as a child I did not understand the concern, now in my twenties I do. This still doesn't change the fact I would have done the same all over again.

Age does matter, to your family, neighbors, and community. Don't get me wrong I'm friends with people 6 years younger than I, and people over 40 years. I love and respect them all.

I guess a recent example is a friend of mine who's 50 years old (male), we go for coffee's and for chats out in public, but because of our age difference, well let's just say rumor mills will run.

But if you are good friends .. just smile

Don't think so -.- But I do think that I don't have many friends that are much older than me, but I do think that I could be friends with them -.- It's just a matter of preference If the other person likes the same things as you then there shouldn't be much of a problem xD

I have played MMO's for the past 7 years and of course most of the player base is under the age of 18 or early 20's and I never thought the age difference was an issue. I was a guild leader and my guild always called me a mom like person who they could trust, I guess what it boils down to is how the people in the friendship perceive it. On the flip side I did know a girl on 1 mmo that was 30 at them time that would flirt with all the boys regardless of age, think girls/guys like that are despicable.

Nope nope. My best bunch of online buddies are younger than me, they're 17 year olds this year, and they're an awesome bunch.

Of course not. Age has nothing to do with friendship.

Is it okay if I was friends with a 6 year old and we are just playing card games to determine the fate of the world and who gets to be called the king of games?

If it's just a friendship, i don't think so. I'm friends with plenty of older people and younger people.
